Sanding plates, marking F-holes

Sand top until smooth and even. Yellow tint should be removed evenly. Use "Mouse" to cover larger areas quickly and evenly.

Mark lateral line 196 mm from top (neck) end.

Use F-hole template to mark F-holes. Align inner point on lateral centreline and inner edge on longitudinal centreline. Reverse and mark other side to match.

Mark centres of holes at both ends of F-holes.

Use appropriate drill bits (~6 & 8.5 mm) to drill holes. Use sheet-metal drills (brad-point) with points.

Continue on bottom with planes and chisels until close to templates. Smooth out with scrapers.
